blitzer, who is live for us in jerusalem tonight, and anderson cooper and ben wedeman, both in gaza city. wolf, let me start with you if i may. a very tense day with claim and counterclaim coming almost on an hourly basis. there was going to be a cease-fire, then no cease-fire. both sides trading sort of insults and then offering fig leaves. what do you make of it all? as we talk now in the middle of a night there, what do you make of where we really are with this? >> well, throughout most of the day, i thought they were very close to reaching a cease-fire agreement. all the signs looked rather positive. then all of a sudden, on this day, it was getting increasingly more tense in the southern part of israel and what we've been seeing in gaza, very, very bloody as well. you wouldn't know that they are apparently rather close to some sort of a deal, that the egyptian government, the new president, mohammed morsi, seemed to be brokering. they may still get some sort of cease-fire agreement. it looks very tenuous to me right now but you know, sometimes just before, having covered cease-fires
>>> na dothat does it for us. we'll see you again one hour from now. piers morgan tonight starts right now. >> tonight cease fire, is hamas ready to lay down their arms? >> the right thing for the state of israel is to exhaust this opportunity to obtain a long-term cease fire. >> our prrnbrothers will guaran the understanding of this agreement. >> both sides tell me what it will take. >> i would prefer to say i would be cautiously optimistic. >> this is piers morgan tonight. >> good evening. our big story tonight. after 8 days of firing, a cease fire on the border. >> we want the entire world to understand that you we can explain the pale faces of the leaders of the enemy because they have failed in their attempt. >> i have to say that all of this was done with the firm support on the part of the leaders of the international community and i would like to thank president obama for his support. >> on both sides and around the world, what is the atmosphere like and is there a sense that hamas has strengthened it's position? >> there is to a certain degree. if you look at the terms o
means a lot to us because now, because of millions of people you reach, you now are seeing one of the rarest creatures in the world, you can see the power we're talking about. you also can see the beauty of the animal. it would be a tragedy to see this animal go into extinction. there are several tiger species that have gone into extinction. that's not what we want to have happen. >> it would be a tragedy but a bigger tragedy would be if one of them ate me live on air. nice to meet the tiger cubs. >> they were born about 13 weeks ago. >> we are going to bring out now -- what is this? >> this cat here is something that you could even hold this cat, probably. if he bites you, it won't hurt bad. >> you know what, you just hang on to the animals for now. >> if you have ever been to egypt, in egypt, in the tombs, the pyramids -- >> like a sphinx face. >> they used to try to d domesticate. you saw how big the tigers were? it won't get that thick. you see how thin it is. look at the ears of this cat. see why -- they didn't worship the animal but the animal represented royalty back the
's difficult for all parties, but it's not over and the best choice for all of us is to stop shooting. >> you'll hear more from that exclusive interview in a moment. we begin with cnn's arwa damon live in gaza city. arwa, i had a fascinating conversation with president peres earlier. he's still saying that it could go either way but what is your sense on the ground about the likely prospects of a cease-fire and how long will the israelis give it before committing to a possible ground offensive? >> reporter: the likelihood of a cease-fire seems to be increasingly elusive the longer this does drag on, and all through the night, we have been hearing the sound of air strikes, some of them have actually shook the building that we're standing in. we have also been seeing rockets continuously being fired from gaza city, from the center of the city towards israel. not a lot of optimism on the ground here amongst residents of the city who have been through this on so many occasions in the past, that there will be any sort of cease-fire that is going to take effect in the near future, not to mention on
negotiated with egypt and with the support of the united states, and it promises us what this whole campaign was about. it promises the people of southern israel peace and quiet. it promises them that they no longer have to live in constant fear of an incoming rocket launched from the gaza strip. it promises them for the first time in a very long time the possibility to live a normal life. and from our point of view, if these promises are fulfilled, that's a good thing. >> i understand that also it promises the people of gaza, perhaps, a better future. we're hearing via "the new york times" as i speak to you that the terms also state the underlying grievances of gaza, the movement that impedes through gaza, will be started 24 hours after the cease-fire is in effect. now, that is clearly a big move by israel. >> i think it's important to remember the following. there's cause and there's effect. when we pulled out of gaza in 2005, when we took down our settlements and pulled back to the international frontier, there were no restrictions in place whatsoever. our restrictions were in place when
and doing it day after day. all of us have talked on this show and other places about how bad the president has been in the past on selling what he wants to happen, on explaining his policies and really bringing people around to them. and we see him now trying to do that in a more forceful way than he's done in the past. and that may strengthen his hand further. >> also, do you think -- sorry. ross, do you think the deal in the end when it gets done, as it obviously will get done at some stage, do you think the republicans will by then, whether they want to or not, have moved on this thing that obama says he's adamant about, what he was elected on, as he says, which is this basic tax rate going up by say 3%? do you think they are going to end in the end have to acquiesce to that? >> i sort of do think they will because in certain ways from the republican perspective, you could argue that the smartest thing to do is to, you know, vote, vote to extend all the bush tax cuts, let president obama veto that extension, then vote a middle class tax cut and let the top bracket expire, and then repub

states and it promises us the people of southern israel peace and quiet. that they no longer have to fear rockets coming in. the promise of the possibility to live a normal life. >> i understand that it promises the people of gaza a better future we are hearing by the "new york times" that the terms stayed that under lying grievances the border restrictions the movement of people and goods will be addressed 24 hours after the cease fire is in effect. that is a big move by israel. i think it is important to remember the following, the there is cause and effect. when we pulled out of gaza and pulled back, there were no restrictions in place. that they no longer have to fear rockets coming in. the promise of the possibility to live a normal life. >> i understand that it promises the people of gaza a better future we are hearing by the "new york times" that the terms stayed that under lying grievances the border restrictions the movement of people and goods will be addressed 24 hours after the cease fire is in effect. that is a big move by israel. i think it is important to remember the follo
countries see opportunity in the united states of america. thanks for joining us. >>> good evening. breaking news tonight. you're looking live at a tense and fearful gaza city but what you can't see, thousands of israeli troops with tanks and armored vehicles poised on gaza's borders ready to invade if israel believes there's no chance for a cease-fire in its conflict with hamas. the world is watching and waiting. this was the scene earlier today. tonight, i talked to both sides of the conflict, listen to what israel's president, shimon peres, tells me about the looming threat of all-out war. you do believe, mr. president, that a ground war may be inevitable? >> well, i hope that we achieve cease-fire. the negotiations are still being continued. it's difficult for all parties, but it's not over and the best choice for all of us is to stop shooting. >> you'll hear more from that exclusive interview in a moment. we begin with cnn's arwa damon live in gaza city. arwa, i had a fascinating conversation with president peres earlier. he's still saying that it could go either way but what
think he's one of the finest leaders that this nation's ever produced. many of us feel terrible about all of the events that have transpired. but of course we're all accountable. every one of us. and unfortunately, in this town, usually the mantra is everybody's responsible so nobody's responsible. >> let's turn to events in israel and gaza. clearly escalating very dangerously again in the last 24 hours. what is your take on this and what do you think the american reaction should be, if anything? >> well, i think the whole area is unraveling. i think there's a lack of american leadership. i don't attribute that directly to this latest flareup. the thing that's changed now as opposed to previous confrontations between israel and hamas is that we don't know what role the egyptians are going to play here. the egyptians have been equivocal, as you know, on this whole issue of gaza and the sinai and all those things so it will be very interesting to see how the egyptians come down on this. i don't think there's any doubt this is a terrible escalation. thank god they've got iron dome but ob
in the ground with both sides using it for their propaganda purposes. how dangerous do you think it is over there given what we are seeing? hamas has threatened tremendous retribution talk about the gates of hell opened? >> well, i'm more concerned of egypt. the muslim brotherhood is in power now, and it is unsteady power. they have to find the fine line between the secular military and the sopponents. if there is a battle, it is inside egypt. >> and we were talking today earlier to find out that one by one all of the major security breaches are down played and in the end, we are left with general petraeus having had an affair, an affair discovered by the fbi under different circumstance, and in this circumstance, could he have ridden it out? >> well, he, himself, could not ride it out. he did the honorable thing and resigned. he knew that the announcement that he had been having an affair with someone not his wife, he knows the affect on this organization and the institution, and both the institution of the agency and of the military. and so he did exactly what one would expect of an honor
